2 Pilots 1 Sailor they will all be released by March next year
I will post the details further but here's the basic breakdown

 

1 Pilot Pen in Yellow what seems to use the 742 hardware as the base with flat ends (1000 units) 30K yen+

and one thats probably made in chased black ebonite PROBABLY has the same nib as the 742 again in the classic flattop look (500 units) 40K yen+

 

1 Sailor thats basically a Progear Micarta (100 units) 160K yen+ maybe KoP sized?

They are Maruzen pens made by Pilot for Maruzen. Same nibs with different inscriptions. As they are for Maruzen, quality might be higher.

Thanks for posting these Algester. I like that chased one, Athena. I’d there a price listed? ( though I ask with trepidation).

Yeah, thanks Algester! That's very useful and good to know what to hold funds for. Maurizio, the chased one is about USD $450?

Ooh . . . that hurts. The pen looks a little like a Custome 845. It is very nice. What is its composition? I am assuming resin not ebonite.

Not ebonite as per the pdf I linked above.
